Sean Feucht Confronts Today’s Antisemitism with Prayer and Protest 

Amidst rising anti-Israel protests plaguing university campuses, worship leader Sean Feucht is stepping into the fray.

His response? “The United For Israel March” – a public stand for Israel and against growing antisemitic sentiment in America.

“Every Christian…should be absolutely horrified at what we’re seeing…hotbeds for antisemitism and hatred of the Jews,” Feucht declares.

Consequently, he sees this march as a counter-attack, rallying the church to declare in unison, “We won’t stand for this.”

Feucht anticipates prayer, worship, and unity at the “United for Israel March,” aiming to shift the campus atmosphere.

Furthermore, the aim, Feucht emphasizes, is to bring hope amidst escalating division. Additionally, his conviction finds its basis in the Bible.

The worship leader said, “There are people who are going to rise up with courage and boldness, who are going to say, ‘Enough. We’re going to stand with our Jewish brothers and sisters; we’re going to respond to the command in Genesis 12 that says, ‘I’ll bless those who bless you. I’ll curse those that curse you.’”

Echoes of the Holocaust

For Feucht, this isn’t merely politics but a spiritual battle. He draws disturbing parallels between today’s anti-Israel rhetoric and the ideologies that fueled the Holocaust.

Consequently, he calls believers to engage, asserting, “We understand that this is the work of the enemy. We’re coming to bring the light; we’re coming to say we’re not going to be pushed around and we’re going to join with our Jewish brothers and sisters.”

Feucht’s apocalyptic rhetoric (“These are the end times”) might strike some as alarmist.

However, it reflects a widely held view within certain Christian circles that current geopolitical events fulfill biblical prophecies.

Whether agreeing with this eschatology or not, it’s undeniable that antisemitism is a centuries-old scourge, tragically unopposed by the church.

Furthermore, “The United For Israel” March has the potential to be more than just a rally.

It prompts deeper self-examination within the church regarding its complex history with the Jewish people.

Importantly, the march reminds us that standing with Israel isn’t just about foreign policy but also combatting the ancient evil of antisemitism.

The Role of Faith in the Public Square

Feucht’s willingness to use his platform in this way may be controversial.

Some might question whether public rallies are the most effective means of combating hate, mainly when tensions exist on campuses.

Others might object to blending religion and politics in this overtly public fashion. 

His stance also highlights a broader tension within American evangelicalism.

It raises questions about reconciling Christian Zionism’s focus on Israel’s theological importance with peace and justice in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Believers must grapple with balancing prophecy and compassion regarding Israel, navigating the tension between seemingly contradictory impulses.

Regardless of one’s stance on the specific issues, the United for Israel March highlights antisemitism as a pressing issue.

It’s an opportunity for Christians to reflect on the church’s legacy of complicity in and resistance to anti-Jewish hatred.

It’s also a chance to recommit to ensuring such darkness is never given space to flourish again.
